On 28 February, when Times Internet Limited’s (TIL) music streaming service Gaana, announced its fresh $115 million fundraising round led by Tencent Holdings, it represented an important moment in India’s streaming wars with two distinguishing elements. First, the entry of one of the world’s largest tech companies in the sector. And second, the timing of the announcement: it came in the wee hours of the morning in India, on the same day Amazon launched its Prime Music.
Pat came the reply, even before the question was posed. “It is up to the government to decide,” said a composed National Pharmaceuticals Pricing Authority (NPPA) chairman Bhupendra Singh. It was almost as if he knew what the question was. The chatter is constant, and speculation galore, that the power to regulate or cap drug prices in India is being wrested from NPPA and passed on to the Department of Pharmaceuticals. For over two decades, NPPA has regulated the prices of drugs in India.
With much fanfare, in June 2016, The Times Group—the publisher of The Times of India and arguably one the largest media houses in India—and New York-headquartered Vice Media announced that they would be starting operations for the country with a TV channel and have digital operations on mobile and the web. Vice India web operations is a 50:50 joint venture worth $10 million with both the parties committing $5 million.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
